Just Magnolias - Last Card of 2010 - Anythink Goes!

Can you believe it is the last day of 2010?? Me... I am more than ready for this year to be over! 

Today is Just Magnolia's day.. and well ... some news about that there is a little bit of a change to our wonderful challenge site... ready????
How fun is that??? Now you can use your very well love Magnolias... AND... Hanglar & Stanglar images!!  It was so exciting to get down my very few Hanglars and dust them off to use for the challenge!

For my card this week - I used two images, that match up so cute don't they?

I colored them with my Copics - with pastels for the background. I then high-lighted with white gel pen and stickles. Love any images with hearts :0)

The card is an easel card, and I used lots of papers for it. The script background paper is from Graphic 45 - rich feeling and looking paper. Then for the "art" looking paper - Thomas Kinkade papers. Love his art so when I found his paper, I just had to have some, even if it is hard to use most of the time. I just hate covering it up!
 This was also a chance to use my Martha Stewarts Frosty Village border punch. I purchased this punch last year on clearance and have never used it. PERFECT for these papers though! My sentiment is from Just Rite and punched out with a large EK Success tag punch.

I loved using my Hanglars for this one... and so excited we can now use them during the challenge!! Just a shame that they are so hard for us US gals to get!! I was very lucky that a couple of super sweet friends helped me get the ones I have...  Thanks so much :0)

Now pop over and see all the DT cards and then join us!!!

Off to spend the day with Hubby - we have great plans for the New Years Eve evening... our favorite... Dinner in - Movies - him on the computer - me crafting... ahh a wonderful evening!

See you next year!! HUGS and -
